Zinc finger protein 367 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZNF367 gene.[1] The human gene is also known as ZFF29 and CDC14B; the orthologue in mice is Zfp367.[1] ZNF367 contains a unique Cys2His2 zinc finger motif and is a member of the zinc finger protein family.[2]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of ZNF367 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Zfp367tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi[7][8] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists.[9][10][11]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[5][12] Twenty six tests were carried out on mutant mice, but no significant abnormalities were observed.[5]
